Love and Lattes

We have a special guest today! The fabulous Heather Thurmeier has agreed to an interview and of course nothing would be complete without talking about her novella!!! Love and Lattes will be out for purchase on September 10th! Just days away!!!

Here is the fabulous cover!!!



Now let's ask some RANDOM and UNRELATED questions!!

1. Are you a good bowler? Nope. Absolutely not. The last time I took my DDs bowling, we had to have the bumpers up the whole time (old system). Well, the 4 year old had a better score than I did...by a lot. I can't even bowl with bumpers.

2. If you were a bouncer at a club who would you make stand in the line a little longer? Easy. The 'Juicehead gorillas' and the 'guidettes'. I'd let in all the super uncool people like myself. And now you know my dirty little secret—I love watching Jersey Shore!

3. Who has more fun, blonde's or brunettes? What's your evidence? I'm gonna have to go with blonde on this one. I could throw out a blonde joke about how even if they weren't having fun they wouldn't know it...but that would be rude to blondes and since I am one (Sort of. Was one?) I really shouldn't fall in line with the cliche stupid blonde joke.

4. If you were stranded in a small town would you embrace being in a quaint town or panic for fear of being murdered? I'd embrace it. While I don't enjoy living in a little town long-term, I love to visit quaint towns. I wouldn't fear being murdered, well unless the little down was in the deep south and there were a few questionable looking people playing banjos on the the front porch of a run down general store. Anyone else hearing the Deliverance movie song in their heads? And I would never walk to an old creepy farmhouse looking for help if I run out of gas... Did it just get darker in here? What was that noise?

5. What's more important to you a fancier car or a fancier home? Can I be a spoiled brat and say both? Really. I do a lot of driving kids around so my SUV with DVD is essential. And I'd get lost without built in Navigation. But I also spend a lot of time at home, working, relaxing, playing with the kids, chillin' with my hubby, so a nice living space is important too. I wouldn't want a huge mansion or anything—Who the heck would clean all those rooms? Not me!—but a modest house with nice features would be cool.

Fun & Random Questions: (Haha! You mean those first ones weren't fun and random?)

1. Being chased or doing the chasing: Being chased. As long as it isn't one of the banjo people chasing me.

2. Laying by a river or a beach: Beach, preferably with strawberry margarita in hand.

3. Cosmo or Margarita: Margarita. Always margarita. I even have a machine that makes them on my counter. Yum.

4. Moonlight or candlelight: Moonlight. I love looking up at the stars.

5. Stripes or polka-dots: Polka-dots.

Such a cute cover! Such a cute story! Such a cute author!!! Leave a hello in the comments for her! She's fabulous!

Thanks so much for having me, Jen! I LOVED answering your questions. So fun!!

Hi Trisha! Thanks for coming by. Polka-dots are way more slimming than stripes. LOL! ;)

Anne Gallagher said...

Thanks Jen. Another great interview. And I live down South with those weird banjo playing dudes. I have a B-I-G dog.

OMG. What a funny interview! Loved the cover, by the way.

I've seen the photo of a latte with a cinnamon heart like a thousand times, but I've never seen one with two hearts! That's cool.

I am totally stealing some of your interview questions--your questions are always THE BEST!

I LOVE THAT TITLE!! :-)

Abby said...

Hello Heather! This book is so cute! Love the title and cover!

And I really love your interview questions too! So fun!

Samantha VĂ©rant said...

Haha. Awesome interview questions! Awesome answers, too!

Sarah Pearson said...

Hi Heather. You have a Margarita making machine? This is all kinds of awesome :-)

heatherthurmeier said...

@ Sarah, I do have a margarita machine! It's pure delicious awesomeness. We were given it as a gift and thought we'd never use it...We now buy the biggest bottles of tequila and mix available so it's always on hand...Yeah, sure, we don't use it at all... ;)

Jennifer Hillier said...

Great interview! A margarita machine? Where do I get one of those?

And yay for polka dots. I really think they're making a comeback.

Stephsco said...

Polka dots are in the fall issues of Marie Claire and Glamour so I think that's an IN!

I love the random question about the small town. I'm more creeped out driving by myself at night on dark country roads than I am in a city.

Laura said...

HELLO :) I'm looking forward to the novella - are we talking kindle launch or paperback or both?
Lxxx

Elana Johnson said...

Stripes over polka-dots? Are you SERIOUS?? ;)

Great interview -- Jen, you always have the best questions.

Congrats on the release of your novella.

Christina Lee said...

AWWW what a great interview!!!! LOVE your cover (and congrats)!

heatherthurmeier said...

Thank you everyone! Your comments gave me the warm fuzzies all day!

@Jennifer, you can buy a margarita machine at Amazon (you can buy anything there!) and I've even seen them at Kohl's and Bed, Bath and Beyond.

@Laura, Love and Lattes will be out in ebook (kindle, nook, etc) first and then it will come to paperback, but I don't have the PB release date yet.

Lindsay N. Currie said...

Talli Roland said...

Jen, I just love your questions! Especially the bouncer one. :)

Great interview, ladies!
